Funeral & Memorial Doves...a Special Tribute of Love
Funeral & Memorial Doves
Funeral & Memorial Dove Releases:
At the end of a graveside service, there are few things more powerful than the release of white doves. Bringing both closure and hope to all who attend. Our white doves are an excellent visual that will surely be remembered.
White Doves are a vivid symbol of hope and peace. A family member, relative or close friend can release the first dove, symbolizing the one we have come to honor. Then, the rest of the doves are released and unite with the first as they all gracefully circle overhead. Shortly after, the doves fly off into the horizon and return home. This is very symbolic of the way our Spirit one day will return home to God and unite with the ones we love. Life is eternal!
Typical Funeral & Memorial Dove Release:
- The Dove Release. At the grave site or memorial service, a single dove is presented to a family member to release from a small "heart shaped basket" in memory of the one who has departed. Shortly after a flock of 30 doves are released to join the single dove in the sky. The flock of doves symbolizes "angels" and the spirits of loved ones who have passed on before. They all join together in the sky showing the departed soul the way home.
- The Dove Display. A white dove is displayed in a beautiful cage in all of our funeral and memorial releases representing the departed loved one. Family and friends are free to take pictures and keep the memories of this experience. The Dove Display is placed near your loved one during the grave site or memorial service.
- The Poem and White Feather. We also give the family a "poem" reflecting the occasion and a "white feather" as a keepsake in remembrance of the departed. The "poems" can be seen and read on the "Funeral Poems Tab" to the left.
- We invite you to choose any number of doves that would be meaningful to you. Let us know and we will work with you to make the life of your departed a celebration of gratitude, love and peace.
As professional trained Dovekeepers and staff, we always dress appropriately, showing honor and respect to those we serve.
Let Your Spirit Soar On Wings of Love!
A ministry of peace and hope!
